So I was just thinkin today that I'm gonna make my truck into an offroad only machine. Its not gonna be wheeled in the dark so lights aren't really a problem. It will not see street so no signals or w/e else and there is no sound system. All I want is the simplest electrical system I can get. Push button start, thats it. What all does a chevy HEI engine need to run? It needs one hot wire to the disty, a main line to the starter, as well as one for the solenoid activation on switch. What do each of the wires on the alternator do? Basically what I want to know is what is the simplest wiring scheme to make a chevy v-8 run. I wiring diagram would be perrrrfect but I can deal with explanations! Thanks for all your help and/or suggestions.
